Charles' 'great problem': King torn between love for Harry and 'hurt' Camilla
21.11.2023 - 06:39
When King Charles celebrated his 75th birthday last week, he not only enjoyed an intimate dinner at Clarence House, but was reportedly sent a recorded video message from Harry and Meghan’s children, Prince Archie, four, and Princess Lilibet, two. It's thought that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had reportedly made what could be seen as a first attempt at reconciliation by phoning the King to wish him a happy birthday – marking their first conversation in six months.
Prince Harry, 39, and his wife Meghan, 42, who now live in Montecito, California, previously said they had “no contact” from Buckingham Palace regarding an invitation to the evening birthday event, but put any bad feeling aside to wish King Charles well on his special day. The olive-branch call was said to be “friendly and cordial”, according to a source, and despite relations between the King and his son being strained, it's understood that he would never let that get in the way of having a relationship with his US-based grandchildren.
“It really hit home how he should try to work through this for the children’s sake. Charles knows he doesn’t have many more birthdays or Christmases left and wants to try to repair the rift so that his grandchildren will be a part of the family like everyone else,” the source said.
However, the insider went on to claim that Harry’s strained relationship still continues with other senior members of the royal family, and Prince William and Queen Camilla in particular could prove to be obstacles in the road to reconciliation. “There is virtually no chance of mending the damage between his two sons,” the source continues.
